Jen was able to keep all the kids interested the whole entire time! It was certainly more suitable for the girls. The highlight of the event was when they were singing and dancing the "Frozen" away! The adults were enjoying it as well. Jen was late due to traffic, but other than that she was providing a great entertainment for the kids.

We hired Ani for our baby's 1st birthday. Ani was very pleasant and was great with the kids. The kids LOVED her. My daughter is very much into the movie Frozen and asked Ani if she could paint some of the characters from the movie. She had never painted them before but gave it a shot and they came out really good! My older daughter who is 5, begged me to hire her again for her birthday party. Looks like we'll be seeing you again Ani. Thanks for your services :)

I couldn't have asked for a better person to face paint at my brothers 8th birthday. Jennifer was Great ! She was very flexible with me as I had to push back the party start time due to the rain. We were a bit crammed in the house as the party was suppose to be outdoors , but she still did an amazing job with the little amount of space she had & her artwork was very beautiful. The kids & adults loved her. Will definitely be having her again ❤️ Thanks Jennifer

Picked Angela for our double party (1st and 3rd birthday) and can honestly say the kids had a blast with her skills, not only great at face painting but also great with kids! There were about 25+ kids and she covered all of them during the two hours we had her with us, and a lot of kids had their face and hand painted. We will definitely hire her again, for future parties. Thanks Angela!

Sarah was a joy to work with ! Very prompt on email and communication. We had hired her service for my daughter's 7th year birthday. Sarah did a a fantastic job on the face painting. She uses a unique combination of colors that matches the attire and they all looked so pretty in the end. We had about 22 kids and she was able to manage them effortlessly. I highly recommend using Sarah for your next birthday party.

We were so lucky to find Celia for our daughter's 4th birthday party! From the onset she was communicative and very prompt in her text and phone replies. She was flexible in scheduling as I worked through the party planning. Celia arrived on time and even checked in on the day of the event to reaffirm our appointment. If you check out her profile, you'll see her artwork speaks for itself, so rest assured the face painting turned out great. All the kids, and adults for that matter, loved her and her sweet demeanor. (I've already given her number to a couple friends who attended the party and want to use her services.) Thanks again, Celia! You were a pleasure to work with and we'll certainly call you the next time a face painter is needed! I recommend everyone else do the same.

For my daughter’s 12th birthday, Amulya did henna tattoos for the kids and adult guests. Everyone was fascinated on how fast Amulya worked in creating different designs for everyone. Thanks for making our first henna tattoo experience a delightful one!

Marcela does fantastic work! We hired her for a block party, and she handled at least 50-60 kids over 4 hours. She was punctual, professional, friendly, and her face painting is high quality artistry. I will definitely book Marcela for face painting again!

Mr. Stone put on a great show for the kids. They really enjoyed his approach to magic, which is interactive and educational. The adults also enjoyed the experience. He is professional and helped turn a potentially run-of-the-mill birthday party into something really special. I highly recommend him.

Kimby was incredibly professional and probably one of the best entertainers we've had at our children's birthday parties. She captivates her young audience and the kids are so into it. She's also a very talented face painter and just a wonderful down to earth person as well. We'd definitely recommend her to friends.

Joan is great. My party was yesterday 9-21-13 and it was scheduled to be at a park. But it was raining..and Joan told me it would rain checking to see if I her another place just in case..but I didn't.....So I kept the party at the park And it began to rain on me while I was there. So after I cleaned up got home and set up for a house party Joan was calling. She came in and did all really nice face painting for about 15+ kids. They each were in love with their new look. Thanks again Ms. Joan and I hope to work with you again.

Andy was awesome. We hired him for a Cub Scout event. He responded to the quote request super quick. His pricing was competitive. His contract is common sense and he showed up on time and was ready to go on stage as agreed. His magic skills are excellent and he does a great job of getting the kids engaged and into the show.

All Star Showgrams was amazing to work with! They were quick, very professional, and made the process of booking very easy. We were SO THRILLED when Batman (Tom) came to our twins' superhero birthday party. Not only was he not scary in his Batman costume for an audience that ranged from infant to 9 yr old, but he was super friendly and entertaining. His costume, attitude, voice were all on point and I'd highly recommend him and this company to any family that needs a character...especially Tom for Batman. He entertained a rowdy group of 14 kids (mainly preschool age) for over 2 hours!!! Money well spent!!!

I was looking for someone to do face painting and balloon twisting services for my daughter's 1st Birthday Party. I found Hooray Balloons Kids Entertainment and a couple other businesses that offered similar services on Yelp. Elaine was the first to quickly respond! She answered all my questions and was able to accommodate my requests. She was also great about checking in prior to the event. Elaine was very professional and you could tell that she loves what she does!! A lot of my guests were very impressed and the kids liked her too! Her face painting artwork was on point and she had cute options for balloon twisting. I would definitely recommend her and will use her services again!!

I hired sugar yum yum for face painting and balloons for my youngest daughters birthday. All the kids loved her!! I couldn't be more happy with the amount of energy and effort she puts into her work. I will most definitely book her again as my two other kids were begging to have her at their birthdays before her time was even up!
